The Park stands out from the rest. This hip spot in the heart of the Meatpacking District is bound to impress even the most jaded of the New York elite. Each room evokes a different theme--from the rainforest-style dining room to the Red Room infused with Asian aesthetic. The dining room encircles an immense cluster of bamboo, with other tropical plants stand strategically placed. The organic nature of the setting is complimented splendidly by the healthy, adventurous dishes of new American cuisine on the menu. A glass enclosed Atrium offers a secluded and chic spot for any private event or party. The penthouse leads to a rooftop patio which is suited for social gatherings. In addition, a heated outdoor garden with Japanese maple trees gives diners the chance to enjoy the Park's distinct cuisine outside any time of year. Come to the Park and escape from the norm.

It was great. Food was good. Cocktails and sodas are small for the price. But beers are good. The inside was beautiful!

Our server was friendly but not as attentive, we sat by the garden and the noise from the street to the music plus other peoples conversation made it hard for our group to have a decent conversation. The food was underwhelming, the burger bun wss stale, the Margherita pizza had one lonely basil in the middle that seemed like it was just a cheese pizza with one basil as a garnish, everything was room temperature when it was served. We took a chance even if the reviews we saw online were mixed but mostly on the negative side but we now understand why.

Overall it was good service, good drinks and food. The best thing about this place is the ambiance.
We had reservations for 13 people, 9 of us were on time, but the restaurant made us wait because they wanted to have all 13 people there before giving us a table. The restaurant should be a little bit more flexible with this policy.

This restaurant used to be a more fine dining experience but they have definitely changed their entire dynamic. The wait staff wears polo shirt now... hello TGIFridays. All that aside, the food is completely not worth the trip here. The crab cakes are undoubtedly frozen food (extremely tiny as in dollar quarter sized) the charcuterie tray is the saddest looking board I’ve ever seen (when they tell you there are 3 meats and 2 cheeses be prepared to have 2 cheese wedges that are 2-3 inches in length and an inch in diameter and 3 tiny pieces of meat). I brought my work colleagues here who all work in the hospitality industry and they were incredibly underwhelmed. Not to mention when we arrived they told us they weren’t cooking pizzas (there goes a quarter of their menu).

So, I had such a great experience with one group of friends a few weeks ago, I brought another group of friends from out of town and was SO unhappy. First time we sat in the garden room, terrific atmosphere, open air, the food was terrific, the waitress was engaging! This past week, I made reservations, specifically requested the Garden Room. The hostess could have cared less about the request, just said there was no way she could seat us in that open air room. We asked if we could wait for it, she said our waiting was making her nervous, and suggested we wait in the side bar area. After 30 minutes, post reservation time, we gave up. She the seated us in the furthest corner boot, where the waiters were running behind us barking orders to the bar all night. The food was really dry and overall not very good. It was such a completely different exerience from the lunch experience. Manager needs to figure out the staffing differnce between shifts or whatever the other issues are in the evening. I COULD really like this place, location and menu are great, but really didn't this last time... at all!!

My family and I went to celebrate our daughter’s graduation; the place is really nice - it looks like a garden in the heart of Chelsea. Service is very good and fast; we had time to have a nice walk on the Highline, Park which is just across 10th Ave

The atmosphere of this restaurant is amazing! It looks so cosy and warm. Even though you’re in the middle of New York, you feel like you’re sitting outside in a beautiful park. The employees were really kind and made us feel welcome.

The food was fine. We ordered a pizza and burgers. The pizza was very good, but the burger plates were a bit disappointing. The taste was good, but the “design” of the plate was minimal, especially compared to the ambiance of the restaurant.

Overall, it is a great restaurant to spend a lovely evening with friends and/or family!

salmon good but small portions
Bronzino good
Lamb ragout /pasta good but small portion
Short rib burger juicy cooked right and delicious
Drinks are overpriced-drink at the bar at Happy hour its cheaper
Server forgot about us handed us a dessert menu before we received our dinners
Service was slow

We were looking for an outdoor venue for dinner and found the listing. Arrived to a very chic restaurant with semi-outdoor space (it's covered with open front) - very cool. The noise level was off the charts.. We asked to sit in front of the doors - which helped with the noise level and it felt more outdoors. My young son, husband and I then saw a car at the stop light hurl a full water bottle into the restaurant whizzing by and spraying water. Luckily no one was hurt.

Our server was extremely lovely and helpful. However, my son's and husband's food arrived and mine did not. It finally arrived when they had finished theirs. The pizza was taken off the bill which was a nice gesture.

Not sure we need to go back :(

The food was very good, I had the prosciutto and arugula pizza. The service was equally as good. I was dining alone and did not feel that I was forgotten. As an added bonus, I was witness (with the rest of the restaurant) to a marriage proposal (she said yes). I really enjoyed my meal and will be recommending The Park to my friends.

4.1 rating, beautiful ambiance (IF you’re seated in the room with greenery and not the main area), and an interesting menu - what could go wrong? Pretty much all of it. We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation only to find tons of available seating throughout the two rooms. The menu and cocktails looked great but ended up tasting like something you’d get at a 2 star bar. The pizza was undercooked, the other food was too fried, and the cocktails tasted like pure alcohol.

The whole experience was most excellent! We chose to sit in the garden, with its chirping bird and beautiful trees. Our waiter was attentive and rolled with our unorthodox food orders. There were three of us. We had decided to share everything we ordered and we ordered one dish at a time. This allowed us to enjoy each dish and gave us more room on the table. To start a pitcher of white sangria and the prosciutto and arugula wood oven pizza, delicious. Next was the fried calamari, yum followed by the chef’s selection of artisanal meats and cheeses, my personal favorite and another pitcher of sangria. Thinking that we should get some kind of veggie in our feast we ordered the Tuscan kale salad. Our final dish was the garganelli lamb ragout. With full bellies we reluctantly didnt order dessert. Maybe next time we’ll forgo the salad and leave room for dessert.

You absolutely go to The Park for the ambiance. It is a beautiful space. The food is just ok, nothing spectacular or exciting. The service was good and attentive and the hostesses were very nice as well. Would definitely go back but just for an early evening drink instead of dinner. Too many other places with truly outstanding food in this city!

Awesome atmosphere. Took 17 minutes to seat us after our reservation. Service was super slow. 15+ for the first drink, and appetizers that were ordered at the same time were within minutes after.

Server seemed to be the only one working. Price point is decent, but service is everything. Food was good! Salmon burger has a good sauce, but was small.

Worth the try!

Staff was very attentive. Ambience was amazing. Light decorations at the ceiling was a nice touch. Food servings are big enough to share if your date has a small appetite. It would be nice if there was a lounge area with couches and dimmer lighting. Always better to have a reservation. Overall happy with the experience.

I love bringing out of towners here. The atmosphere is so pretty and the prices are moderate. The menu is a bit all over the place, but workable for most palates and dietary restrictions. Our server was nice, but it took a long time for our food to arrive in a mostly empty restaurant. There were no apologies and when the food did arrive, two of the four orders were wrong or missing items.
